Create Secure Web Service in IIS 6.0, 2.0

Posted on 2012-08-22

   I need to create a secure web service on a server using IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET 2.0. I have Visual Studio 2008.  I can create a file that is a Web Service file, and can define the interfaces for the client. What I don't know how to do is to authenticate the clients who invoke the interface.  The website itself is secure (i.e. starts with https://)   I don't know what I need to do to authenticate the client.  (Keep the IIS 6.0 and ASP.Net 2.0 restrictions in mind).  Can someone please advise me on how to do this?

    Sorry for my delayed response.  I thought I had the web service done, but I didn't realize I really cannot use WCF to deploy the service on Asp.Net 2.0.  Now that I understand that, I might still need the answer to this question, so I will leave it open for the time being while I redo the web service.
